Updown performance February 2010 - S&P500 beat me by 1.8%

Practice invest

My Updown account is currently UP 0.97% in February 2010.  By comparison the S&P 500 was up 2.85% so I got beat by the index by 1.88%.

Thus far in 2010 I'm up about 0.8% which is 1.8% better than the S&P 500.

Since starting in March 2008 I'm up 5.3% while the S&P 500 is down 22.3% in that timeframe.

I bought some Freddie Mac and AIG stock in Updown at the end of the month.   I bought relatively small positions in both of them to test out short term speculating.  I've set limit sell orders to dump them once they've gained some.
